Hi everyone! I would like to introduce myself to those who don’t know me? My name is Zarina (Zara). I am a head coach and founder of the new rhythmic gymnastics school - Zara Rhythmic Gymnastics Academy.
I was born and grew up in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. I was introduced to rhythmic gymnastics at 6 years old and since then it became a very important part of my life. I was a member of the National Team of Uzbekistan in Junior Group in 2005-2007, and then switched to individual competing .
In 2011 me and a wonderful coach Mukhamedova Rano started coaching the Junior Group of the National Team of Uzbekistan. In 2014, for the first time for Uzbekistan, our girls won the Asian Rhythmic Gymnastics Cup and therefore got the chance to participate in Junior Olympic Games in 2014 in China. After that I started assisting the Honored Coach of Uzbekistan - Polivanova Lyudmila in coaching the National Team of Uzbekistan - Senior Group. In 2016, under the coaching supervision of Polivanova Lyudmila and Izrailbekova Zarina and the Uzbekistan government assistance, the Uzbekistan National Team - Senior Group got the chance to compete in 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
Since 2017 I’ve been continuing my favorite job, teaching kids rhythmic gymnastics, in the USA. In April of 2018 the USA Gymnastics awarded me with the Coach of the Year Award in Level 4 Region 2.
I am so happy that I had an opportunity to open my own school and continue doing what I love - teaching rhythmic gymnastics. Give your daughter a chance to experience the most beautiful and gracious sport in the world! Become a part of our wonderful team! Enjoy Your Rhythm!
Rhythmic gymnastics is an Olympic sport that combines elements of gymnastics, ballet, dance and apparatus manipulation. Both individual and group routines choreographed to music with the use of multiple apparatuses: a ball, a rope, a hoop, a ribbon, and a pair of clubs. It is one of the most beautiful and elegant sports in the world. It is also one of the most versatile and harmonious sports out there. Physical activity is accompanied by the development of strength, endurance, flexibility, discipline, strong will, great body coordination, sense of rhythm and artistry. Participating or competing in rhythmic gymnastics will help your kids build confidence and develop leadership skills that will be essential throughout their lives.
